Setting the standard for residential homes!

The Nauhaus is the first Hempcrete Home in America, and is setting the standard for what is possible in terms of alternative energy and building.

Complete with all the modern amenities of home; within a rustic setting, surrounded by nature, with a creek running through the backyard, as well as close access to the Greenway trail along the Hominy Creek (river) , and walking distance from Haywood Road / West Asheville Village, and 5 mi to both downtown Ashe-ville and the Biltmore Estate and Village.

Asheville has proven to attract the most genuine, unique, and authentic people we have ever met. We love our Community, and are so grateful to have relocated here from the West Coast. It is an amazing place to raise a child, as we are quickly finding out.

Many of the details listed above, of why we chose this beautiful and unique home!

We love being so close to all major attractions, shopping, and restaurants, yet be able to come home to such a peaceful abode nestled in the trees, with a flowing creek in our backyard, and a trail with 'hobbit' style bridge across the creek, through the woods, and to the Hominy Creek Greenway.

Also, love sitting outside on the brick patio or porch with candlelight listening to nature's orchestra, watching the fireflies, and on a clear night the majestic starlit sky!

Great Space both Indoors and Outdoors!

  • Submitted: Apr 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We had a wonderful stay and visit. A great space both indoors and outdoors. Having a bedroom separate of the living space helps to make the accommodations very comfortable. The hosts were very gracious, we even popped in to say hello and let our little ones get to know each other. The house is just close enough to any activity that you might want to be involved in in Asheville, but also private enough for a little down time. Thanks, JahSun, Lizzy, and Sophia! We hope our paths will cross again very soon!

THE place to stay in Asheville!

  • Submitted: Apr 11, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
JahSun and Lizzy's eco-home is THE place to stay in Asheville. Their home is located within walking distance to West Asheville (and even the River Arts District) with plenty of local restaurants, micro-brews and entertainment venues at your finger-tips. The surrounding neighborhood is quaint and friendly. The home itself is a representation of the very best of Asheville; integrating the beauty and function of the natural environment into the structure itself, minimizing the building’s footprint on the surrounding landscape, and housing a host and hostess who are kind, accommodating, and in-tune with their community. My wife and I visit Asheville at least once a year and, in our experience, you just couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Thanks again JahSun and Lizzy :)

My wife and I visited Asheville for a long weekend with our six week old daughter. Nauhaus was the perfect place for us to stay. JahSun and Lizzy were extremely welcoming and gave us great recommendations upon request. We will certainly look to stay at Nauhaus during our next visit to Asheville.

Owner's Response: Thanks Josh. We really appreciated hosting you and your family for your first family trip! We loved meeting your little one too, what an angel;) I am grateful that the bassinet worked out well for you!

We look forward to hosting you for your next trip to Asheville! As you mentioned during one of our communications, I am glad that the Nauhaus felt like your home away from home.

Many blessings and much gratitude,
JahSun, Lizzy, and Baby Sophia

A Peaceful and Loving Vibe Abounds

  • Submitted: Jan 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
As frequent visitors to WNC, we have stayed in a variety of lodgings, from the Grove Park Inn to rustic cabins, to chain hotels. By far, we consider the Nauhaus to be our favorite! It is extremely comfortable, well appointed and equipped perfectly. It is cozy, but not cramped, and it is pretty cool to stay in a hempcrete house. We loved the Buchi and local beer and chocolate that welcomed us, with JahSun, Lizzy, and beautiful Sophia after a long journey.
A peaceful and loving vibe abounds! The location is excellent, being in W. Asheville, giving a visitor a local feel, and with easy access everywhere. We will return! With gratitude, happiness, love, and peace.
